Real Madrid Interested in Arsenal Striker Gabriel Jesus as Long-Term Successor to Karim Benzema

Recent reports suggest that Real Madrid is eyeing Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus as a long-term successor to Karim Benzema, leaving Arsenal with the prospect of having to fight to keep the Brazilian player in their squad. Jesus joined Arsenal last summer from Manchester City in a deal worth around £45 million, which was seen as a huge coup for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Real Madrid’s Interest in Jesus

Real Madrid failed to pursue Jesus last season due to Spanish rules that prevent more than three non-EU players in a squad. At that time, Los Blancos had Eder Militao, Rodrygo, and Vinicius Jr holding those spots in their squad. However, since Vinicius Jr has now qualified for a Spanish passport, Real Madrid is now free to buy another Brazilian player. Reports suggest that they have their eyes on Arsenal’s superstar striker, viewing him as the ideal replacement for Karim Benzema, who is currently 35 and winding down.

Arsenal’s Position on the Matter

Arsenal won’t want to lose Jesus, especially this soon into their project, but they have reason to expect that he will remain with the club. In an interview after the last game before the World Cup against Wolves, Jesus said that the club felt like a “family,” and after making such a big move to north London, he would be unlikely to leave after just a season. Arsenal has Jesus tied to a big contract and would no doubt demand double for his services.
